OK, I'm a little too lazy to go back and see if I've called this one out before, but even if I have, I don't care. This one is good enough for a reprise.

First off, the sound is incredible (sorry, Matrix-haters). And, as indicated in the subject, this Peggy-O is just so beautiful that it makes me shiver. Jerry's solo is a thing of absolute beauty. Yes, there are a couple of vocal flubs with the lyrics, but Peggy-O is one of those tunes that Jerry seem to regularly misplace one word or another. No matter, its overall hugeness more than makes up for these minor inconveniences.
The jam out of He's Gone is stunning. Just when you're sure they are about to break into Other One, Jerry pulls back and veers off into a fantastic world full of cotton candy clouds and gumdrop mountains. Mind expanding. It's topped off nicely with a smack down of a GDTRFB. Jery blows it up.
This show has a few weak spots here and there, but it still managed to mangle my work space into an unrecognizable pile of rubble. Today is most surely going to be a good day.

Like Dire, your descriptions intrigued me to give it a listen. The recording/matrix is superb, the Fenario sweet and the He's Gone->Jam are quite nice . . . given the year. I'm torn between" do I download this sweet show" or will I bum out each time I hear that awful, cheesy toy piano sound ... not a fan of Brent's vocals either. Ah, the yin and yang of listening to the Dead.

This has always been one of my favorite GD videos and its a sweet reading of Peggy O http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_6RNldWGm4

from 4.12.78. It's realy nice to have close ups of Jerry as he is singing this achingly beautiful tune - the range of emotions he expresses with his face, voice, and guitar is why he is my favorite musician. Bobby is also in fine form instrumentally, weaving melodic lines throughout the verses and harmonizing beautifully with Jerry during the solo.
